Re: The Donlad ... Getting stuff Done!!!

China holds all the cards when it comes to US relations. Trump gave away the TPP, getting nothing in return from China. China won't respond to US sabre rattling about new military installations on disputed islands, and they know that even Trump is not stupid enough to take military action against t...
